Induction is an important part of your new journey with us.
You will be provided with key information about the University and your course. You may also need to undertake some mandatory elements (health and safety, manual handling and the use of specialist equipment, for example) and where this is the case your attendance will be monitored.
We strongly recommend that you continue to check this page as information may change as plans are finalised.
If you join the University after the start date of your course or for any other reason cannot attend some or all of the induction for your course, please contact the Infozone as soon as possible to discuss options for you to attend a catch-up session either online or face-to-face. The Infozone can help if you have any other questions about what to expect, what to bring with you, and your University experience more generally.
You will also be able to access more induction information in the Brightspace Induction area.
Students for Professional Health CPD courses should send all enquiries to email@example.com
If you have enrolled and uploaded a photograph for your ID card we will aim to have this available for you to collect when you arrive on campus (whether this is for a face-to-face induction event, or the first time you are on campus for teaching.) Please ensure you bring Photo ID with you and can present this for checking by staff. Valid forms of Photo ID include a driving license, passport, national identity card, PASS card or similar proof of age card.
The majority of course induction will be taking place online this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions. However, we still want your new University experience to start with an engaging and information induction so in the weeks leading up to the start of the academic year you will receive a link to join our online Induction community in Brightspace - the University's online learning environment. In the Brightspace area you will be welcomed to the University by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Helen Langton, your Course Leaders and academic teams as well as all the professional support services who will help you to prepare for the start of the exciting new academic year.
If you are starting an apprenticeships course, you will be contacted with further information about your induction day.
